Discworld lives on in Unseen Academicals, the latest novel from Terry Pratchett. Delivering the trademark insight and humor readers the world over have come to expect from “the purely funniest English writer since Wodehouse” (Washington Post Book World), Unseen Academicals focuses on the wizards at Ankh-Morpork’s Unseen University , who are reknowned for many things—sagacity, magic, and their love of teatime—as they attempt to conquer athletics.

From the Back Cover:

Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork—not the old-fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them.

And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.

The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too.)

As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed for ever. Because the thing about football—the important thing about football—is that it is not just about football.

Here we go! Here we go! Here we go!

About the Author:

Terry Pratchett is one of the world's most popular authors. His acclaimed novels are bestsellers in the United States and the United Kingdom, and have sold more than 85 million copies worldwide. In January 2009, Queen Elizabeth II appointed Pratchett a Knight Bachelor in recognition of his services to literature. Sir Terry lives in England.



Stephen Briggs lives in Oxfordshire and has been involved in the world of amateur dramatics for many years, which is how he came to discover the Discworld. Having read one book, he was hooked and read the entire canon over the next three weeks. Oxford Studio Theatre Club went on to stage his adaptations of Wyrd Sisters; Mort; Guards! Guards!; and many, many more. As well as compiling The Discworld Companion, The New Discworld Companion, and now Turtle Recall: The Discworld Companion . . . So Far, he has also coauthored the Discworld Diaries and the Mapps, and has provided the voices for the UK and US Discworld audiobooks.
